uncensored news about Iraq

http://www.ihlresearch.org/iraq/ provides a interesting overview over the Iraq war. The EDA (Eidgenössische Departement für auswärtige Angelegenheiten) pays for this page so it should be much more reliable and less biased than Foxnews/CNN or Al-Jazira.

This page focuses on the Iraqi civilians.

You mean other than the fact that it's German?

It's not German it's swiss.

The EDA is the Swiss fed. department of foreign affairs. And Switzerland has a long tradition of being neutral Switzerland always cared about "humane warfare" (They invented the red cross for example).

Holy cow, this strikes me as really odd:

"A top Iraqi official said Tuesday that U.S. warplanes hit two buses carrying people acting as human shields and called U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld a "cheap liar."

Information Minister Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf said 56 Iraqi civilians had been killed 268 others injured by coalition bombing Monday and Tuesday. He said Iraqi forces downed an Apache helicopter, repulsed coalition forces in southern Iraq and foiled a British landing in the north.

None of the reports could be verified, although coalition officials have not reported the recent loss and any helicopters."

So, he's admitting they use human shields?

ok, I will definitely check it out, but I don't believe any source is unbiased or unscensored.

80sU2isBest:

They use Human shields and "archeolgic shields" did they ever deny it? Iraq maybe has more important archeologic places than Europe and US together (Ninive, Nimrud, Samara, Babylon and Ur to name just a view)
He said the pentagon something like "tell the boys that everything that looks like a hill in southern iraq is an archelogical building - southern iraq is flat

Of course humans are more important than those stones, don't get me wrong, i was just pointing this one out because it dosn't have media attention like the human shields.

Scarletwine:

do you think it's immoral to use volunteer human shields? (it definetly is if they are not volunteers)

If they aren't volunteers i'd simply call it a crime, but if they want to do it, well i didn't make up my mind yet, somehow it's defending like a soldier does, just another weapon.
